Yes, the plan is to update and re-record every video on EpicReact.dev to TypeScript. This is an enormous effort and Kent is working on it. You can even watch his progress by checking out the
next branch of each workshop. You may also notice that moving to TypeScript isn't the only improvement. Exciting things are coming!
Kent plans to produce TypeScript material for you to go through first if you're new to TypeScript and would like to learn it.
The default TypeScript configuration will be pretty loose so if you're new or inexperienced with TypeScript, it shouldn't be much of a hinderance.
The current plan is this rewrite to TypeScript an upgrade for existing license holders. TBD what this update will cost. It might not cost anything or it might have a resonable cost associated with it. It's quite a lot of work.
There is no promised timeline for the TypeScript update. Kent hopes it happens in 2021, but can't promise anything.
Remember, a "plan" is not a "promise" and you should only keep these plans in mind when purchasing EpicReact rather than expecting them to happen exactly as planned.
There are no special discounts available.
We support purchase power parity. This is automated based on IP address of the computer you are using to make the purchase. It's an imperfect system and the discount does not always display.
Note that if you use the PPP discount your purchase will be restricted to the country you purchased it from.
When you buy a team seat, you receive a link that can be used to register for the number of accounts you have purchased. The license is non-transferable (you cannot reassign a license from one person to another).
Yes. You pay the difference from what you paid for the lower tier to the price of Pro at the time you upgrade. This means that unless there’s still a discount on Pro, you’ll not get a discounted upgrade.
Purchasing Power Parity - a lower price for users in certain countries; content is a bit cheaper and the course is only accessible from the country it is purchased from.
Yes, you can! Simply enter their email address instead of your own. There might be a verification code they receive that you’ll have to request from them. Also, if you buy a PPP license, then make sure you’re both in the same country otherwise they won’t be able to access the content in their country.
No, the only available buying options are those on the site right now.
PPP purchases are limited to the content that is displayed at the time of purchase and current and future bonus materials and features might not be available.
When in doubt, and if you want to guarantee access to everything, purchase the PRO tier without PPP discount.
Team licenses are actually coupon codes that can be redeemed by users. Companies are not meant to own or keep the licenses.
They are meant to be distributed and are owned by the individual that claims that seat.
They cannot be transferred or "passed around"
Yes, there’s a textarea that allows you to put any arbitrary information into the invoice PDF/printable.
You'll still learn something! Epic React is tailored for all experience levels! Kent covers everything from the basic levels to the advanced to the experimental!
Here is a link to the recording.
Kent recommends around 14 weeks for a “dedicated” pace. The suggested schedule for a learning club can be found here: KCD Learning Clubs Ideas
To link your KCD account with Discord navigate to https://epicreact.dev/discord/ after you have purchased the course. Click on the button and you'll have the
Epic React Dev role added to your account as well as the 🚀 added to your name!
It is all self-paced but Kent holds office hours that you can join to ask questions.
You can join a learning club to check-in with other students live, learn more at https://kcd.im/clubs
In addition, the Discord Community is very active.
Visit this link to learn about how to join a club https://kcd.im/discord-active-clubs. The learning clubs are student-driven, so if you don’t see one that has openings then feel free to create your own. Check the following link for more information about creating your own club: https://kcd.im/clubs
No. The Epic React learning clubs are just for those that paid for the course.
The course is up to date and compatible with React v17.x and Suspense (as it currently stands).
If there are changes in the future that require recreating videos or changing repositories, Kent plans to update those materials within a reasonable amount of time.
Yes! All of the repos work in codesandbox. Simply add "box" to the end of the Github URL.
https://github.com/kentcdodds/react-fundamentals <-- repohttps://githubbox.com/kentcdodds/react-fundamentals <-- codesandbox
It is still recommended to do everything locally, but this is a great alternative if you're stuck on the setup.
Also, every workshop has a
Dockerfile if you like to roll like that.
Yes. Contact the support team at [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com?subject=Epic React: Email Change Request).
